Brian was asked to be the guest speaker at a conference which was held near Mangochi this month. The folk who invited him were very happy to have us join Brian. So while he taught, the kids and I spent our days swimming and eating. We felt like kings.
We packed the land rover and headed out for a 3 and a half hour drive south. The drive was beautiful and we were so happy to get out of the city of Lilongwe for a bit.

Toilet stop on the way! It's a jungle out there.
Our very elegant dinners-and kiddos with no shoes...
What are Ami and Ben looking at?
A vervet monkey who was spying out our lunch. The waiters had catties (catapults) in their hands and evertime they raised their hands as though they were going to send a rock in the monkeys' direction, they scattered through the trees very quickly.

Just exhausted on the way home!

Rainy days?

We need to think up some more indoor activities for when the rains come. We haven't seen much rain yet and expect that it'll start in December. The kids REALLY enjoyed painting these cute pencil bags from Aunty Joanne.
